PDAs and Gliding

I’ve got a little project going at the moment to get a PDA working with the gliders.

I’ve got See You Mobile running on a borrowed Acer n30. The first attempt at connecting it to the volkslogger didn’t work (I was using a slimline gender-bender). The second attempt with a home-made null modem cable worked, connected to the on-board OzFlarm

I have to devise a way of having the PDA operational in flight, where it won’t come up and hit me in the scone! I was thinking of some straps and excessive use of velcro.

HD-DVD processing Key

As an act of preservation, and a stand against censorship i post the following number:

09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0

It’s the processing key for most of the HD-DVDs that are out on the market at the moment. This should allow you to code your own player for these disks, escaping the proprietary lock in from the DVD association.

Don’t Ask me how to use it. I don’t know. I don’t have a HD-DVD player, or any HD-DVD disks for that matter.
